The project explores the personal assistance system HANNA for people with dementia and their Families . The system detects situations independently , provides situational simple communication functions to the members and interacts actively with the demented person. It automatically adopts its user interface and behavior to the disease's progression.
Investigation on the efficacy and applicability of assistive monitoring systems. The aim of the study project is to investigate the following issues related to the state-of-the-art and the data of Montioringsystemen for the home:
- Requirements for Assistance Systems
- What data can be collectet using different sensor types?
- What data is contrived for evaluating, what basic mechanisms can be used and what could be the result of it?
- How is the privacy of the persons directly involved ensured?
The questions should be answered in order to create a start-up project.
My Life, My Way
A modern version of a Butler: A personal assistant that is easy to use (speach recognition of local dialects) and able to learn autonomously the persons preferences and needs. The Assistant will combine tailor made services according to the persons needs like agenda maintenance, medicine alerts, supervison or excercise.

A platform is being created as part of the "ZocAALo" project with the aim of helping to market smartphone apps specially designed for older people. On the one side the platform comprises a "marketplace" for offering apps exclusively for the target group. The user-friendliness of these apps will be assessed beforehand. In addition, the platform supports developers of apps aimed at older people, for example by providing format templates or development kits. The platform is highly customizable so e.g. care organizations can combine a selection of useful apps into their own app and make this available to their customers.

The project is conducting research into a solution for supporting people with dementia within their own homes. The solution includes various sensors, providing direct support for the individual with dementia e.g. in taking regular medication or meals. It will also involve care organisations and carers from the individual’s personal environment. The system supports these personnel in the provision of care and in the areas of safety and prevention.
Trans.Safe wants to develop a system to support senior workers who can and wish to stay actively longer in a job position with a high personal and public safety risks.
The solution will help the senior workers and employees with an monitoring System for Stress parameters and performance.
REVOLUTION wants to develop an innovative ICT-based solution for promoting and assisting voluntary services provided by retired people.
Within the scope of REVOLUTION we focus on simple and effective realtime scheduling of help for persons and families with a short-term need for assistance in the context of driving services, shopping services and help at home.
